Call it hipster-ism, call is selfishness, or call it extreme love, but there are some things we cherish and value so much that the knowledge of them becomes so precious, you want it all to yourself.
I remember loving a video game for Playstation so much when I was younger that when my friend at the time (who had an N64) talked about getting a PS and that game, I suddenly became very territorial and did everything in my power to talk him out of it.
It's pretty weird when I look back at it now, but I really thought that there was no way he could appreciate the game as much as I did at the time. Plus, he had a bunch of other games he was good at and liked playing, let that game be my thing, you know?
As it turns out though, I wasn't the only greedy kid who wanted certain experiences all to themselves.
When twitter user @mum_reader decided to contribute her thoughts to the trending conversation for #NationalWritingDay, she shared this wonderful homework assignment from her son was he was six-years-old.
People loved how fervently the kid loves his favorite book.
Love this, Laura! Like something out of a Roald Dahl book— Abi Elphinstone (@moontrug) June 27, 2018
James would make a great Dahl character actually - he’s full of energy, ALWAYS in trouble and has a terrible temper, but balances it all out with a heart of gold ❤️— Laura (@Mum_Reader) June 27, 2018
People wanted to know what book captured his heart. I mean a piece of literature that could make a 6-year-old that passionate about reading must be special.
I'm curious to know what book that was about. Very sweet and great job raising a lifelong reader!— Kirsty (@kkepp10) June 27, 2018
And it's this bad boy right here. Just judging from the title, it looks pretty amazing.
When it comes to sassy assignment responses, students have been providing endless entertainment for the internet for a very long time.
Like this kid who doesn't feel the need to explain themselves.
Or Hope here who wants to name her rectangle Tedison.
I mean the student's technically correct. If you want someone to follow instructions you had in mind, then make sure you write them down as clearly as possible. It's simple.
He's right, hitting defenseless animals sucks.
Again, there's nothing wrong with these answers.
Who thought about the feelings of the first cells? Hmm? Now this student might've failed biology, but they passed empathy.
Now I'd argue that the Situation's torso has a much more exaggerated taper, but you definitely know what this student is going for.
This assignment is opinion-based, so the answer can't technically be wrong.
Besides, this kid understands that without love, ruling the world isn't a worthwhile endeavor. That's why it's number 3 on the list.
